Professor of Statistics

(Assistant, Associate or Full)


ESSEC Business School, Singapore Campus


The Department of Information systems, Decision sciences and Statistics (IDS) at ESSEC Business School invites applications for a full-time faculty position in Statistics in its Singapore campus.

ESSEC is a leading European business school, a French “Grande Ecole” founded in 1907, with two main campuses, one in the Paris metropolitan area and another in Singapore. The interaction between the two campuses is regular and well-established. It allows permanent faculty in Singapore to benefit from exchanges and collaboration with permanent faculty in France. ESSEC offers training at all levels (BA, MSc, MBA, EMBA, PhD) with a specific emphasis on quantitative tools in its pedagogy and research. ESSEC’s programs are regularly ranked among the best in Europe (FT, The Economist, QS…).

Research is important for ESSEC faculty. We are looking for candidates whose research relates preferably to high dimensional statistics, mathematical statistics, and data science in general. The IDS department is in particular running a MSc in Data Sciences & Business Analytics, together with CentraleSupélec School of Engineering, also available on the Singapore campus since Sept. 2017.

To be considered, candidates should hold a Ph.D. in Statistics (or related) obtained before 2016, with a very good mathematical background, and show evidence of excellence both in research and in teaching. Support to research is key to ESSEC policy and faculty members enjoy an attractive incentive based research environment. Rank of appointment (assistant-associate-full) and salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Salaries are competitive at Singaporean levels.

The final closing date for applications is April 15, 2018.  Interviews will take place in Paris.

Candidates should send their application (CV + motivation letter + teaching statement + research statement + 2 reference letters) to:
